Mondain's Legacy Unveiled

Mondain's Legacy has brought many changes to Akara. First of all, you will notice the additional craftable items for many professions. Some of these require that you learn a recipe, more on that in just a little bit. Bonus Resources are also given when mining or logging and are necessary for some of the new items. If you have a resource box, you will have noticed that 4 new types of logs were added, as well as the ability to craft boards from the different types of logs. New items, such as aquariums, are for sale from vendors around town.

As your wandering around looking for these new items, your bound to notice the new "Quest Givers". All the ones in town are normally spawned in Haven to give new players the task of raising their skills. If your skill level is over 50, then these new quests will not be offered to you. More advanced quests are offered on some of the other maps. Mondain's Legacy uses a new style quest system, to see if they are offering a quest to you, simply double-click on the npc. If nothing happens, then there is no quest for you. The new quest information is accessed with the "Quests" button on your paperdoll. You can have up to 10 quests at once. Some of the quests require that you collect a certain number of items. In order for the quest giver you take them, they have to be flagged as quest items. To do this, you click on your character and select Toggle Quest Item from the context menu, then target the items. If you have the right number of items, when you go back to the quest giver and click on them, your quest will be complete. Old style quests, such as "The Summoning" in Doom, are still accessed from the context menu when you click on your character.

Several of the new ML areas, Twisted Weald, Citadel, Labyrinth, and Bedlam, have been spawned on the other maps. However, the areas do not yet exist on the Felucca map. These areas are being added to our map and as soon as we are able to repatch with ConnectUO we will implement them. We will update players as more areas are opened.

We also had some custom updates. Blood Steeds have been added, which are basically a tamable version of Vampiric Steeds. Some players love em, some hate em, go find out for yourself. Special artifact drops have also been added to the Runemaster. Now if you don't get a rune, you will get one of these 7 special artifacts. Like runespells, these artifacts require gemstones to power them up. To charge them, say "Add Gems" and a target will appear. Target the artifact then the gems you wish to add to it and the charges will update.
